I am eating at a Vietnamese restaurant across the street from the eureka theatre.

This show sounds fantastic, wish I had a time machine.

Hi, I was actually at this concert at 14 years of age with my mother and brothers 11 and 8... That's the way the town was in1968. It was at he Eureka Municipal auditorium which is not downtown, but more in a residential part of town. It was the best, our second concert the first being Donovan at the cow palace, a life changing experience for a 14year old girl from Arcata. Would love to own the poster!

Hi LgI157, you were at this 'dance"? how cool is that! Ive been wanting to talk to somebody who was at this "dance" for years now. I live in Blue Lake and have plowed thru the old newspapers at the Eureka library trying to find a review. I did find one artical about it. I used to have a photocopy, but this is all it said:

Times Standard 1-22-68


Four persons were arested by city police over the weekend on charges of possession of marijuana, two of them, a boy ans a girl, both 16, at a dance at the Eureka Municipal Auditorium Saturday night.
Police were called to the auditorium after the manager called to report a disturbance.
They aressted Donald Dingler, 19, booking him for violating city ordinance 44.08, refusing to disperse when lawfully oprdered to do so.
The managment said Dingler and four juviniles with him were refused admission to the dance because they were intoxicated and that an argument ensued.

I know a fella who knew of this Dingler dude. He told me I would not want to talk to this dude, a very unsavory sort of person now.

One of these days im going to get into the basement of the Muni and find and old dusty complete recording of that Dark Star. Wishful thinking ;)

Thanks for chiming in on this thread. Be well.

p.s. The second pic is a label i made for a beer i brewed to commemorate this show.
